I returned to stock to get to 24a and was able to root but can't for the life of me get CWM recovery installed. I have tried flashify, installing zips, pushing .img with adb...no dice. I get error messages every time or the black screen you described in this thread's original post.
Just tried to load the zip from TWRP...no dice.
I purchased touch through the paid version of CWM and chose my device...nada...it's killing me!
I can live with TWRP but love CWM touch. Really at a loss.
Are you running 24a? If so, can you point me toward the forum link you used to get CWM loaded?
